One Pet Gets Married (From Ancient Times to Today) - Chapter 4
“Don’t…” Song Xici placed her hand on Tang Youan’s shoulder.
“Although we’re married, it’s fake, so we don’t have to worry about that. Also, we must call each other by our names outside since we’re both celebrities and public figures, or else we’re going to be criticized by paparazzi and the media.” Song Xici finished her explanation and gently bit her lower lips.
“I see, so to say, you and I are only wives in name,” After hearing that, Tang Youan gently released Song Xici’s chin and got up.
Song Xici touched her hair and said: “ We just need to call each other by our names, so we appear more intimate. I’ll call you Youan and you call me Xici, understood?”
“Understood.” Tang Youan said, holding the notebook while showing a harmless expression.
Oh no! It’s already so late, I’m leaving. I’ll see you in the evening!” After Song Xici finished her sentence and left the house in a hurry.
Tang Youan nodded as she watched her leave then continued to look at the things on the laptop.
It wasn’t until about 2 o’clock in the afternoon when the doorbell rang like crazy, did Tang Youan get up from the bed. She put on her slippers, walked out of the room, and followed the sound of the doorbell downstairs.
Through an electronic cat’s eye, she saw a face. From the things that Song Xici left, it seems she is an agent called Xu Ying and is an acquaintance.
While ringing the doorbell, Xu Ying frowned while looking very anxious: “Tang Youan, are you there??! Why is that when I call you, the phone turns off?! Today is the opening conference of Officials. What are you doing? Do you want to be absent, then be told by the media that you’re playing a big card again?
Finally, Tang Youan opened the door to let Xu Ying in.
“My aunt, please look at the time. It’s already this late. Why are you still at home in your pajamas?” As soon as the door opened, the cold wind poured in as Xu Ying immediately rebuked her.
Tang Youan looked at her, and didn’t know what she should do so she just bowed her hand: “ Miss Xu, don’t panic, if you have something to discuss, let us go to the room first to talk in detail.”
After hearing that, Xu Ying choked. How did Tang Youan suddenly become so strange? Didn’t she usually call me “Sister Xu”?
“Your high fever didn’t burn out your brain right…?” Xu Ying asked. She reached out her hand and touched her forehead. Then she looked at the broken crystal lamp in the room, full of questions.
“…I’m fine.” Tang Youan shook her head.
Of course, there’s another possibility that might not be impossible, is that one read the script to the point of being able to see the film.
“Forget it, don’t talk about it. Change into this skirt first, then let’s go.” Xu Ying said, putting a bag into Tang Youan’s hand. “And no matter what the media asks, just answer the questions regarding the movie, got it?”
“Noted.” Tang Youan nodded.
Two hours later, Tang Youan finally entered the opening conference for 《Officials》with Xu Ying.
Many of the popular actor’s fans were also waiting outside at this time, but they were forcibly divided into 2 sides by the security guards, revealing the red carpet leading to the venue.
The fans were waiting for their favorite star to enter the venue with their eyes shining. And others, who would sneer at Tang Youan.
“Whenever I think about how Zixi and Tang Youan is going to acting together, I feel a headache.” A girl with “Zhao Zixi, I Love you” board rubbed her hand and said to another “Milkshake” beside her.
“I know right, in the same film crew as a psycho ah…”
“People like Tang Youan should just go to hell…”
As Tang Youan, Xu Ying, and their bodyguards were preparing to enter, Tang Youan passed a group of people and found a girl holding a big board with the words “Zhao Zixi, I love you”, Tang Youan stopped.
“What’s the matter with you, still don’t go…” Xu Ying urged on the side.
“Does Miss Xu have any medicine for frostbite?” Tang Youan turned and asked
“Yes…where did you get frostbite?” Xu Ying looked at her suspiciously as she opened her bag, took out the medicine, and handed it to her.
However, Tang Youan just shook her head and took the item. Then she turned and looked at the girl holding the sign: ”It’s too cold today, not suitable to stay outside for too long. It seems your hand has gotten the frostbite. This medicine is for you. I hope you can take good care of yourself.”
After that, Tang Youan smiled and left with Xu Ying.
Zhao Zixi’s fans stood there in a daze for a few seconds, almost dropping the sign. What the hell?! Didn’t you say Tang Youan is someone who refuses to even sign her name when she meets her fans? I’ve heard a lot about her, but today when I see it, the world is so magical?!
Tang Youan entered the venue following Xu Ying.
Since the investment is huge, and the actors who came here are basically the current rising stars, so when the set make-up photos are released, the attention of the public never decreased.
They have no objection toward other actors, except for Gu Moyan, who is played by Tang Youan.
The reason for that is mainly because Gu Moyan is someone who is good at singing and dancing as well as very considerate, intelligent, knowledgeable and polite. These were all things that Tang Youan especially lacked.
Even Xiao Meimei, who acts alongside her as the female general Zhuang Yu, looked down on her, not to mention some festivals between them. (T/N: I’m assuming it means grudge)
Half an hour later.
Seeing all the major media have entered the venue. The host stood onto the stage.
After the host recited the script, the next topic was handed over to Zhao Zixi, who played the role of Princess Wuyang.
“What is your understanding of Princess Wuyang?” The host asked.
“In my opinion, Princess Wuyan is a soft and tough person. She lost her mother during her childhood, then later on her brother was designed to die as well, but she did not…”
As each of the stars finished their understanding of the film and characters, it was Tang Youan’s turn. So they all looked at her, either with ridicule or worry.
– This damaged product is probably going to ask the question three times again, right?
– Does she remember the manuscript?
– Would she make a fool out of herself again?
“There are many poems about the trees and the ink smoke can be seen in the withered mountains. Therefore, this is a sad name in itself, which probably laid the foundation for Gu Moyan’s destiny. Since ancient times, people all said that beauty has a bad life. If you put that fate on her, it really makes people sigh…” Tang Youan said slowly, with a faint sense of sadness between her eyebrows and eyes. (T/N: She’s saying a poem with her name like what she did with Song Xici’s name.)
At the same time, the big guys were stunned. Is this really a person who dropped out of college in a few days and didn’t even have a little bit of ink in her heart can say? (T/N: Aka supposedly no skills in poetry.)
And what’s with the ancient charm from her body? The media was stunned. Is it congliang or pretended? (T/N: Sorry more side note, Congliang means a servant or slave that is given freedom by a prostitute to marry and leave that job.)
It took more than two hours for the opening ceremony to come to an end.
When Xu Ying took Tang Youan onto the stage, she couldn’t help but keep looking at her. Why is it that Tang Youan feels totally different from before, it can’t be simply because she wasn’t able to act.
This is basically a complete change of person?!
“Come on in.” Walking to the agent’s car, Xu Ying opens the door and waits for her to enter. Tang Youan nodded, getting ready to get into that big guy.
As she was about to enter, a tomato along with a scream of “Tang Youan” was hurled toward her head.
The surrounding security guards were in panic. But right at that moment Tang youan slightly turned her head and suddenly held out her hand to catch the tomato.
This skill… The people present were shocked again, including the black fan that threw the tomato at her, which was petrified at the same time.
Tang Youan held the tomato in her white slender hand, smelling it under her nose, then walked toward the girl who threw it to her and handed it back to her: “Thank you for your kindness, girl. Although I’m very hungry right now. I can’t just randomly eat for nothing. Just keep it for yourself. The girl bit her lower lips and stiffly took the tomato.
Oh my god, the media was stunned and continued to snap. Tang Youan and Xu Ying went back to the car and sat down,
After a while, Tang Youan looked at Xu Ying and asked, “Where is Xici right now?”
Xu Ying looked at her up and down again: “Of course, at the set.”
On the other side, Song Xici was about to rest after shooting the scene. She suddenly turned her head and looked at Xiao He: “I almost forgot that today is the opening conference for Officials. It’s over…give me your phone!”
“Oh!” Xiao He heard her, and immediately took out her phone and handed it to Song Xici.
After unlocking it, the first thing Song Xici did was to log onto Weibo, enter the keywords of Tang Youan, and check if anything happened.
As a result, the words that popped up today were:
-Tang Youan vs. Black Fan
– Tang Youan’s medicine for frostbite
– Tang Youan has changed
Song Xici was dazed for a while.
Just as Song Xici was about to continue swiping down, Liao Bixin, who plays the role of the heroine for the Blue Sea Mermaid, just finished a scene, got dressed, and sat down beside Song Xici,
“Sister Song, it’s Christmas. Do you have any plans with Youan?” Liao Bixin winked at her
“Our family only celebrates traditional holidays.” Song Xici’s words were smiling on the surface, but not in her heart.
“Me too. Originally I only celebrated traditional holidays, but Qi Shen insisted on celebrating every holiday with me. Ah, he did not only say holidays but even said every day should be like Valentine’s day. No matter how busy he was, he would come. It’s kinda troublesome. Ah…” Liao Bixin raised her hand and stroked her temple.
“…..” Song Xici looked at her and was too lazy to answer. She really doesn’t want to play a court fight with Liao Bixin. She only hoped that Liao Bixin would not come and talk to her. (T/N: Court fight, is like the ancient china where the court lady would fight for the attention of the Emperor.)
Liao Bixin and Song Xici debuted at the same time. During the early days, Liao Bixin was always pressured under Song Xici. But after Song Xici’s marriage with Tang Youan, which destroyed the dreams of thousands of young men and girls, Liao Bixin gradually turned over and surpassed Song Xici.
Especially in this film, the role of the heroine was supposed to be Song Xici’s, but in the end, it became Liao Bixin’s, so she became even more inflated.
Later, Liao Bixin and Qi Sheng, a powerful actor, played in a live reality show together. After that, they gained a lot of CP fans and also talked about love in dramas. So instead of having no side effects, with the two together, they caused the crazy applause of the single dogs, who barked at them also every day. “Feed dog food!”
With this contrast, Liao Bixin really threw Song Xici several streets away recently, both emotional and career-wise.
“Sister Bixin, Brother Qi called you!” Liao Bixin’s assistant suddenly laughed and shouted.
After hearing what she said, Liao Bixin’s lips curled up and looked at Song Xici: “I’m sorry, Qi Sheng called again. He’s probably coming soon, how embarrassing but I can’t do anything about it. I’ll go take the call first.”
“Go take it.” Song Xici glances at her then pulled her coat up.
“Hello? Honey, what else can I do? Of course, I’m still filming. Ah… Today, can’t you come? Haha, really, it doesn’t matter if you can’t come… How can it be? How could I be angry with you? You see Tang Youan next door is also too busy to see Sister Song. Sister Song isn’t even angry. Do I look like a petty person? You say, you say! Oh, no, really… “Liao Bixin held the phone in one hand and whispered.
Show. Show it. It doesn’t matter. It’s not like she lacked love. If Liao Bixin thinks she can make her envious and jealous, she’s made a mistake.
However, Liao Bixin’s strategy is really…hard to say.
After listening to the conversation between the two of them. Song Xici turned her head and asked Xiao He for eye drops. Then opened her eyes and dropped a few which were extremely dry from wearing the blue contacts. Then she twisted the lid back and handed it back to Xiao He.
After Liao Bixin answered the phone, she laughed awkwardly: “Qi Sheng suddenly had something to do, so he couldn’t make it to supper. That’s how it’s like to be an actor, ah.”
“Oh.” Song Xici raised her eyebrows and gave a simple reply.
“Sister Xici, Sister Xici! Tang Youan came to see you.” At this time, Xiao He caught Song Xicis’s arms and pushed her.
“What?” Song Xici turned around.
Xiao He pointed toward a place. There she saw Tang Youan stand there with a faint smile and a box in her hands.
Before Song Xici could speak, Tang Youan came over with something in his pocket and something else in the other.
Liao Bixin can’t help but be stunned. What the hell? Tang Youan would never visit Song Xici’s set? Besides one time, but that time anyone with eyes can see that it was arranged by the company.
“Why did you come here without saying anything?” Song Xici quickly pulled her to her side, sat down, and softly asked in her ears.
“Miss Xu said that you’re going to shoot for a very long time tonight. This filming should be regarded as an individual work, and it’s also a cold winter. I was afraid that you would be hungry and freeze at night, so I borrowed some money from Xu Ling and bought you something to eat.” Tang youan reached out and opened the box of warm dumplings.
“So thoughtful of me?” Song Xici looped up at her.
“You are my wife. If I don’t think about you, who else should I think about?” Tang Youan whispered back. After all, for her, Song XIci was the only one she met and knew here.
After hearing the conversation between Song Xici and Tang Youan, Liao Bixin furrowed her eyebrows. Qi Sheng, that fool is not here when I need him. What’s the use of him? I really lost my face.
“Really pleasant to hear.” Song Xici took a look at Tang Youan.
“Well, come and eat.” With that, Tang Youan opened the lid of the bento box.
“All right!” Song Xici clapped her hands.
With the fragrance of the dip coming out, Liao Bixin’s already hungry stomach suddenly began to growl. How shameful.
“Are you hungry too? Do you want to eat it too?” Tang Youan looked at Liao Bixin.
Is she inviting her to eat with them? Anyways, Liao Bixin nodded.
“If you want to eat, you can also buy it. The shop is called Qin Huangge, it’s very close from here.” Tang Youan said, tearing apart the bamboo chopsticks, then picking up a dumbling and sending it to Song XIci’s lips.
If you have any suggestions please suggest it to me lol. Also if you think the curse words should be censored also tell me if that’s something to be considered. As well as if you find the T/N annoying and would like me to put it at the end. (Discord: Blues#4002 or just find Lee on the private translator on the server.
